A lot of people choose to keep studying while they've already started working. It's always great to see people enjoying their studies so much. And better yet, it can help them at their workplace as well. If you get a higher degree than the one you already have, it could give you the opportunity to apply for a higher position in your company. You can hold a better position and you can earn more money. This is a sample request letter for the promotion of teachers in terms of scale salary and designation in the school. You can send this promotion request on printed paper or in an email to the principal of the school.

How to ask for a promotion as a Teacher?

There are a handful of typical reasons for asking for a promotion as a teacher, and might impact your timing: 

  • Fewer teachers available for the positions at beginning of the year;
  • Ambition;
  • Growing costs;
  • Opportunity;
  • The value you bring;
  • Dissatisfaction due to heavy workload;
  • Change of work content due to boredom.

Once you have a better understanding of your own motivation, you can find a tactful way to request your promotion:

  1. Ask your Principal directly. Inquiring this way is informal, and gives you a chance to explain your motives in full and discover new details about the open position. 
  2. Talk with a teacher leaving, you'll be able to ask more details about the position and what types of challenges come with the responsibility. Also, you may be able to ask him/her to recommend you for the position upon his/her departure. 
  3. Aim higher with your conversations. Speak directly with the Principal if possible. Otherwise, speak with your boss's supervisor or find another member of your department who outranks him/her. 
  4. Make a small but formal presentation that explains why you're the best candidate for the open position. 
  5. Plant a seed, and follow up. Start by casually mentioning that you're interested in a position, either to your supervisor or someone higher up in your college or university. 
  6. Start asking for new responsibilities gradually. Instead of asking for a promotion and a sudden onset of new responsibilities to go along with it, try the reverse. 
  7. Come up with a new position. Another strategy to ask for a promotion is to create your own ideal position. Don't be afraid to come up with your own position; the worst they can say is "no."

Script for asking for a promotion:

Respected Principal,

I have been working as the post of Assistant Teacher at your school for four years. In these four years, I have learned enough to be worthy to work as a subject teacher for science at the middle level.

The report sheet of my senior co leagues is also attached herewith, to support my application.

I feel confident to be suitable for the promotion and I assure you that getting promoted will enhance my performance level.

I hope that you will grant my request for a promotion and give me a chance to perform better.

Thank you
